Achieving Six Sigma Quality

Achieving Six Sigma Quality - Define & Measure Phase (5 days)

Workshop Content

This five-day workshop develops knowledge and skill for planning, organizing and leading Lean/Six Sigma improvement project teams to achieve Six Sigma Quality. This workshop offers instruction and guided practice in measuring and improving process quality levels (measured as Sigma Levels). Participants will learn how to plan for Six Sigma Quality using The DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) method for quality improvement. This workshop covers the Define and Measure stages of DMAIC. Participants will learn how to create process maps, to determine the cost of poor quality for a process; and, how to measure and report process yield, process capability and sigma level.

Who Should Attend

This workshop is intended for Champions and Lean/Six Sigma Black Belt Candidates responsible for improving quality and productivity in manufacturing operations. This training is team-based training. The team should include the Process Champion and up to four Lean/Six Sigma Black Belt Candidates. There is a limit of 3 teams per session.


Participants are expected to have completed the Lean/Six Sigma Champions Training prior to enrolling in this workshop.

Workshop Materials

Each participant will receive a manual with all workshop materials.

Workshop Goals

This workshop will provide instruction in, and opportunity to practice, the Define and Measure phases of The DMAIC quality improvement process. This workshop will develop the participants' ability to identify and quantify quality improvement opportunities; and, to develop their ability to perform process capability studies for any process measure. This workshop will also introduce the concepts and practices of Measurement Systems Analysis. Participants will learn how to establish, report and maintain measurement system capability.
